Captured by photographer Tanakit Suwanyangyaun, this stunning image seemingly freezes the moment when a blue whale releases a heart-shaped burst of rainbow-colored mist as it surfaces for air.

The perfect alignment of water droplets and sunlight creates the illusion of a radiant heart formed by the whale's blowhole spray. It is a truly remarkable sight that showcases the beauty and majesty of these magnificent creatures.

However, his excitement reached new heights when he managed to capture this extraordinary photograph above the water's surface. It was a truly remarkable moment for Tanakit, who was able to immortalize his unforgettable experience with the world's largest mammals in both realms. 

Tanakit couldn't contain his joy as he shared, "I feel like I'm living a dream with these photos. Swimming alongside blue whales has always been a lifelong aspiration of mine, and the experience was absolutely unforgettable.

The majestic creatures glided through the water with such grace, their appearances were fleeting as we caught mere glimpses of them before they disappeared into the depths. Having had the opportunity to witness this encounter, I feel an overwhelming sense of fortune and gratitude. If I ever get the chance, I would enthusiastically return again and again."
